Sounds like a problem with the regulator. Try turning on the burners 1st before opening up the propane valve. If that doesn't work unscrew the gas line from the propane tank with the tank valve open a little (burners off) then screw it back on.

SOURCE: Side burner on propane gas grill burns with orange

here is a link to a page that shows what the colors of the flame should look like and what causes the orange instead of the blue flame. http://www.appliance411.com/faq/gas_range_flames.shtml
I would begin by checking to be sure you do not have a spider or a cob web in the burner partially blocking the gas or the air intake.

TURN THE TANK OFF , THEN REMOVE BURNER ASSEMBLY AND CHECK FOR OBSTRUCTION IN THE GAS LINE AREA . IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR SPIDERS TO BUILD WEBS INSIDE THE TUBES AND CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS

Remove connection to tank, reconnect, open valve slowly, when you open valve to fast the tank valve has a shutdown in it, it thinks something is wrong and shuts valve down. Always open tank valve slowly when using.
Also your tank valve could be sticking causing this problem, to fix replace tank.

Hi, We have a Grande Cafe , it is 6 years old,


I think the problem is with the Over Fill Protection Device valve in the propane tank and it's locked up the grill's regulator. To solve the problem turn the tank valve OFF. Disconnect the grill's hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, turn on and light the burner that farthest from the grill first. Does the burner light and the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the burners flames look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON very,very slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

I'm going to hook up the grill to our house propane gas line and not use a propane tank. Will I need a special hook up device? Where is the connection on the grill? Thank you. Frank...


Yes Frank, you will need some specialty parts. The gas line from your tank will need a shut off valve near the grill. You cannot hard pipe the line to the grill. Code requires that your use a 12' long, rubber, Quick Disconnect Gas Hose. They are normally sold as a kit and should have all the necessary fittings. You will need to remove the grill's hose/regulator assembly, as it won't be necessary any more. That is, unless you have a high pressure propane system. Then you will need a regulator on the gas line coming from the tank to the grill. If that is the case, it should have the capacity to carry the maximum Btu output of your grill, if all the burners where ON and at their highest setting, at the same time. And finally, and probably the most important, have the knowledge and skill necessary to properly hookup an outdoor gas appliance. Or have a good friend that is a Certified Gas Technician to help you. Of course, your propane provider would probably do it for you. Which, might be money well spent.

Hope it all works out for you and Happy Grilling!!

Poor gas flow does not stay lit


More than likely, the grill's regulator is locked up. Turn the Propane tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow, motion slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank and turn it to the highest setting. Does the burner flame now look normal? If so, light the remaining burners the same way. If all the flame heights have returned to normal, you've solved the problem. If they haven't returned to normal, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can purchase one from any home center or hardware store that sell gas grills and accessories. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped to solve your problem. Happy Grilling!

My propane tank is full, but none of my 3 burners come on, 1 does very slightly but then goes out, help! thanks


Turn the propane tank valve to OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Then, reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner knob to high. Does the flame height look as it should? I f it does, light the remaining burners the same way, one at a time. Do all the burners burn as they should? If so, you solved the problem. If not, you need to replace the grill hose/regulator assembly. You can get one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Just take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Look for spider webs in the venturi tubes, check the orfices or it could be faulty controls. Verify the tank working properly by trying on another grill.

Is not heating properly , the flame is not as strong as it used to be.


This is a common problem with grills purchased after 2001. There is a new safety feature inside the regulator called a 'surge protector'. If you open your propane bottle valve too quickly or if you try attaching a tank with the tank valve in the 'open' position, the propane wants to 'surge' into the grill.

When the propane surges into the regulator (located on the grill hose) the 'surge protector' (inside the regulator) kicks on. When this happens you will not be able to get your grill lit, and if you do, it will be a small blue flame and the grill will not heat up.

So what to do if you trip the surge protector and can't get your grill to light or heat up?

Shut the tank off and shut the valves on the grill off. Disconnect the tank from the grill hose. When you disconnect the tank from the hose you will hear the excess pressure of propane release. This is an indication that you have re-set the regulator's surge protector.

Now that you have deactivated or reset the surge protector, reconnect the tank. Make sure the valve on the tank and the valves on the grill are in the closed and in the off position. After you reconnect the tank to the hose, SLOWLY open the tank valve (making sure the valves on the grill are in the OFF position).

Since you have slowly opened the valve on the tank, the propane did not surge into the regulator and the surge protector did not activate.

Now open 1 valve on the grill and light it. You should get a nice flame. If your grill has more than one valve, open each following valve in sequential order to extend the flames to the other burners.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.

DCS Propane side burner


Hi and welcome to FixYa.

Check the venturi for the burner tube that leads from the control valve to the burner head. We often see where spiders take up residence and create a web and and obstruction right where the air is introduced into the venturi, causing the condition you are seeing. Also check the burner head itself for obstructions and make sure eveerything is clean. Usually air shutter adjustments are "fixed" and do not require adjustments, as these are factory pre-set. If this burner at one time functioned properly and has since degraded, something is interfering with the mixture and adjusting the shutter is not the correct fix. However, if this burner has not functioned propely from day one, there may be some adjustments needed.

I hope this info is useful to you. Please be aware that if you decide to rate my repsponse, "thanks for trying" is actually somewhat negative in nature. I only say this because I have taken the time to type out very detailed responses to people and they come back with a "thanks for trying" rating. The label for that rating is misleading to the customer. It means we didn't do such a good job answering your question.

Thanks for using our service!

The regulator freezes on my three burner Barbeques Galore Grill


This can happen when an excessive amount of propane gas is used or when if the tank you are using is not sitting upright, therefore allowing liquid propane to exit the tank through the regulator.
